Dalton's 6-yard TD run lifts Bengals over Chargers

SAN DIEGO -- Andy Dalton scrambled up the middle for a 6-yard touchdown with 4:11 left for the go-ahead score, and the Cincinnati Bengals won their fourth consecutive game, 20-13 over the staggering San Diego Chargers on Sunday.

On second-and-goal, Dalton pump-faked right, then ran up the middle, dove for the end zone and got the ball across.

The Bengals (7-5) remained tied with the Pittsburgh Steelers in the race for the AFC's second wild-card berth.

The Chargers (4-8) lost for the fourth consecutive time and the seventh time in eight games, and they remain only mathematically alive in the wild-card chase.
